Groundcover Between Pavers - Knowledgebase Question

Voorheesville, NY
Question by gemcar

I need something to grow in place of the weeds that spring up all through the spaces between the "clamshell" shaped pavers I have in my walkway at my business. The landscaper left the normal 1/8" to 1/4" between pavers and filled in with the fine gravel. It's amazing anything can grow in such a thin, inhospitable place, but the weeds are having a WONDERFUL time! Since there isn't enough room to plant anything, and I'm sure moss won't grow there (the walkway is a large area too, about 3' x 30'), I was wondering if there was a hardy, ground-hugging plant that grows from seed. In other, words, do you have a miracle solution for me? I really dislike using herbicides where I'm contributing to poisoning the earth, even if it's only a little bit. I really appreciate your help.
